  5. Dont' know if this qualifies as a first, bit a DUH just the same. Toned out at 2 a.m. been asleep about 2 hours) to a pt with abdominal pains. Arrive on scene to find an elderly Pt. sitting up on bed clutching a small waste can trying to vomit. Assessment revealed classic textbook signs of STROKE. Packaged him up and was heading out the door when ALS arrived. While giving report, I said "breath sounds are round and reactive to light". He looked and said OK, and how are his eyes. I realized what I had said and replied " clear bilaterally" We had a laugh over that one.

    Employer & Tb Testing

    To the best my memory serves, the only time I was required to get tested was for the EMT class, as we would be doing clinicals at a selected hospital.

    EMT at sporting events

    We have of events throughout the year, and local EMT are contracted to provide EMS services to them. The most popular is the annual fair. During the fair, the probability of accidents occur during events such as bull riding, demo derby, and tractor pulls. No ambulance is provided, however, is available should someone be injured. It is available for them, just like it is for any resident, but it is usually not placed on standby. The pay is great and the hours are many.
